Check out our betting preview of tomorrow’s FA Cup quarter-finals encounter between Sheffield United and Arsenal.

Sheffield United and Arsenal face each other at Bramall Lane tomorrow afternoon for a place in the semi-finals of this season’s FA Cup edition.

This is their first meeting in the oldest football tournament in the world since a Fifth Round clash in 2005, which the Gunners won on penalties and went on to win the trophy.

The Blades are looking to book their place in the last four for the first time since 2014, but Arsenal progressed from 13 of their past 15 FA Cup quarter-final matches.

What to bet on?

Handicap: Sheffield United +1

The Sheffield United +1 bet means that the Blades will turn out winners if we add one to the number of goals they’ll score on Sunday afternoon.

It technically means that Arsenal won’t win the game – the result will be in favor of the Blades or at least tied after the regular 90 minutes.

The Gunners failed to beat Sheffield in both Premier League encounter this season and won in just one of their past eight trips to Bramall Lane in all competitions.

Goals: Under 2,50

In both Premier League meetings between the sides this season the total sum of goals scored was under 2,50 – with Sheffield winning 1-0 at home and saving a point (1-1) at the Emirates thanks to Fleck’s late equalizer.

Additionally, only one of the last seven clashes between Sheffield United and Arsenal at Bramall Lane saw more than 2,50 goals.

Correct score: Sheffield United 1-0 Arsenal

If you really want to gamble than you can try and guess the correct score of this FA Cup quarter-final encounter.

We believe Sheffield won’t lose and there won’t be more than 2,50 goals in the game, leaving us only a few options for this bet.

And while it could as well be 2-0, 1-1 or 0-0, our choice for the “Correct score” bet is Sheffield United 1-0 Arsenal.
